Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Line a cup cake tray with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  3. Gradually beat in the eggs a little at a time until smooth, adding a little flour if the mixture curdles. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder until smooth.

  4. Place heaped dessertspoon full in each cupcake case and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.

  5. To make the buttercream: Mix the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy, then add a drop of food colouring to colour the icing green. Using a piping bag and grass nozzle, pipe the icing on top of each cupcake. Decorate with edible football decorations.
